Brother PE800 Embroidery Machine Review
Easy to Use Embroidery-only Machine for Beginners
While I personally enjoy and love using other Brother embroidery machines, the Brother PE800 embroidery machine is my favorite. The machine is not only easy to use, but it gives me everything that anyone can need from an embroidery machine.
The machine is virtually unlimited when it comes to design options. Unlike the Brother SE600 embroidery sewing machine, the Brother PE800 cannot be used for regular sewing because it is a dedicated embroidery machine.
Other machines are multi-purpose machines and can be used in embroidery as well as for fashion sewing. The Brother PE800 is an ideal choice especially for those concerned only in embroidery work.
Since it is a dedicated machine, it means it will be the best at what it intends to do because all the features are meant to develop an excellent embroidery design. The fact that it is meant to perform a specific purpose, makes the machine stand out from the rest embroidery machines.
The machine is best suited for home embroidery, especially for beginners looking for a fast, flexible and dedicated embroidery machine they can develop their skills with.
In spite of the machine having tones of monogramming fonts and built-in designs, it has plenty of editing features which make it exciting to use.
The machine is also quite versatile and easy to use as it comes with an instructional DVD and directions that will enable you to operate the entire machine smoothly.
The interesting fact about the Brother PE800 embroidery machine is the price, which is set according to the customer’s affordability.
In other words, every customer has a Brother embroidery machine model based on their spending limit. It will not be a surprise when you find customers having the same Brother embroidery machine, but with different features.
Software & designs
The Brother PE800 embroidery machine has complete access to the best Brother’s software features including the downloadable design selection.
The machine has 11 monogramming fonts (3 Japanese, 7 English, and 1 Cyrillic font) and 138 built-in embroidery designs. In addition, there are 14 borders styles and 10 frames shapes.
Did I mention that you can combine the available embroidery designs with monogramming? Actually, there are numerous easy steps that you can follow which will allow to adjust virtually everything.
